Murray McDavid Peatside Vatted Malt Whisky is a vatting of single malts from unexpected origins. Bottled from 6 Casks, Limited Release - Peatside is a 'tea-spooned malt', 99.9% of one single malt blended with just a tiny drop of another. The serendipity of blending gives rise to wonderful creations, and the origins of the spirit will, of course, remain a secret!
Peatside is matured in American oak followed by freshly emptied Port and PX casks. This combination showcases the flavors shining from the barrels collected from around Europe
The initial maturation in a bourbon barrel gave a light sweetness to soften the peaty spirit. The Whisky Creations Team then split the 'Peatside' spirit into two different casks, one that had held port wine and the other, Pedro Ximénez Sherry. After nearly two years in the finishing casks, this unusual spirit has developed the perfect balance between smoke and oak.
